White thing

I was looking at the (I think) Brown House Moth and never even noticed the small white tapered looking guy at bottom left until much later. With apologies for the photo quality, can anyone point me in the right direction?

I'd go with Lyonetia clerkella as a very vague possibility if it was really small. But truth is as Andy said from that you will never know.

Actually that works for me, especially as there's an apple tree right next to the trap location. I'll file under 'possible' -- thank you!

I agree with clerkella.

All the best
